Salute to International Women’s Day! – Touching Lives

Posted on: March 10th, 2021

It has been 17 years since I was first recruited by MCYS or now MCCY ( Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth )as Deputy Registrar of Marriage (volunteer). I believe that I have been serving as a “Family Life Ambassador “ setting an example of one with a work life balance, then juggling between a demanding job as a Senior Manager in an US multinational company and roles of wife and mother of 2.

It is a delightful community service where every occasion is a happy one. Many of my couples were perfect strangers and we met on the ROM website. But there seems to be a special bond as we connect.

In January 2021, I received news from Germany that one of my grooms in his early 40s, has succumbed to cancer. The bride sent me a message as she was feeling sad & lonely. I hope my replies comforted her. I seem to connect well with German nationalities, perhaps it is my Wella heritage. In February 2021, I was solemnizer for another German groom and a Singapore bride. They are back in Germany and have invited my husband & I to visit them if the opportunity arises.

What started as a social obligation has become more meaningful than I first thought. Indeed, “Love is a many splendid thing!”
